Even if kids practice good dental habits, issues like cavities, chips, or cracks can still develop.
Dental fillings treat tooth decay and other dental problems so kids can continue to enjoy good oral health for years to come.
At Children's Dental of Waltham, we use tooth-colored dental fillings to seamlessly restore our patients' smiles.
Why do parents choose our Waltham, MA, practice for their children's dental needs?
Are Dental Fillings Just for Cavities?
Many parents think cavities are the only reason why their child would need a filling. In fact, dental fillings can be used to treat a range of other dental conditions besides cavities, including a:
- Chipped tooth
- Cracked tooth
- Root canal infection
- Protect soft enamel

Types of Dental Fillings
At Children's Dental of Waltham, we use composite fillings to restore our patients' teeth. These tooth-colored, composite fillings offer a number of benefits over the amalgam and gold fillings of the past. Amalgam fillings are much more noticeable because of their silver appearance. In addition, amalgam fillings contain small amounts of mercury; while the amalgam material is considered safe, many parents prefer a mercury-free filling option.
If your child has suffered significant dental damage, we may recommend a crown instead of a filling. A crown completely encapsulates the tooth and will offer more strength and protection.
